This was a nice stop while wandering around Cuenca. Terrific collection of artifacts, some dating back to 5000 BC - amazing. Throw the front desk a couple bucks and enjoy the nifty collection on the second floor. There is English translations so you know what you are looking at. When done, there is a nice gift store and cafe on the ground level. Well done!

This understated museum includes a courtyard, a cafe and an upstairs full of original objects from earliest cultures of Ecuador. With only short descriptions, the objects are beautiful, carefully displayed and representative of each culture. The museum shop is chock full of items that attempt to reflect the indigenous cultures, but it includes many manufactured items rather than hand made.

It's nice, but quite small and it's a little different the concept of picking up the sheet with the infos since it's usually displayed under the pieces. I recommend it but it's a very quick visit.

This small museum is stuffed with artefacts from all over Ecuador and gives an insight into the many ancient cultures. English explanations are limited, but fine if you already know a little. If you have an hour or more to spare this museum is well worth visiting.

This is a lovely little museum. A friend told us to look for the jazz hands and we weren't disappointed. I was surprised ar all of the happy little faces.
